Local Contact Tracing

Local Contact Tracing for COVID-19

In our continued efforts to control the spread of COVID-19 we have set up local contact tracing for COVID-19.

This local contact tracing works in partnership to support and complement the national NHS Test and Trace system. Local contact tracers are specially trained council staff who will contact local residents that have tested positive for COVID-19 but have not been able to be reached by the national NHS Test and Trace system. Local contact tracers will inform those residents of the legal need to self-isolate, request their close contacts in order that they can be traced and give signposting to local advice and support.
